3 Burger Recipes Using Pulled Jack Fruit (Palakkai Burger Recipe)


Raw Jackfruit dishes at my house is relished without any complaints. In southern India jack fruit is considered to be auspicious, we prepare many traditional recipes using raw and ripe jackfruit. I have never tried using a jackfruit in a burger before this was my first attempt and we enjoyed all the 3 burgers. 

Many people dont know the properties of this fruit, it is rich source of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, electrolytes, fiber, fat and protein. Consuming jackfruit in vegetable or fruit form is equivalent to 4 rotis or 3 types of vegetables.

Jack fruit is easy to clean we will have to apply coconut or sesame oil to the knife and hands and start peeling the fruit or vegetable. Then chop the vegetable into large chunks and place it in large pot of water.

We can cook the jackfruit using a pressure cooker since i was preparing this pulled jack fruit burger I did not want to over cook the vegetable and used a heavy bottom pot to cook the vegetable to perfection.

To prepare 3 different burger recipes I used 650 Grams Jackfruit.
1 Vegetable Stock Cube
1 Tbsp Salt 
2 Liters Water
Heavy bottom pot.

Bring water to a rapid boil in add salt and stock cube place on low to medium flame and add jack fruit.

Keep stirring the jack fruit every 5 to 10 minutes and check if the vegetable has cooked. It took me 30 minutes to cook my jackfruit to perfection.


Once the jack fruit has cooked drain excess water using a colander and place the jack fruit back in the pot. Once the vegetable has cooled down gently pull apart the strands and reserve.

We can store the cooked jackfruit refrigerated in a airtight container upto a weeks time.
